Fewer Children Per Class For More Personal Attention

Increased attention and a smaller class size than at your neighborhood school means your child has plenty of opportunities to ask questions, become immersed in their learning, take risks, and have fun. Watch your kiddo blossom with individualized education!

Certified Teachers Have Plenty Of Heart

Experienced teachers with a true passion for Kindergarten learners are the key to a successful Kinder year. They give your child plenty of nurturing while also teaching the life and academic skills they need to succeed in their primary years.

A Blended Curriculum Covers Academics & Character-Building

Your child’s curriculum is a blend of the best: Reggio-based for more play with Christian values. The Texas Pre-K & Kindergarten Guidelines ensure your child masters math, literacy, science, and more, which are the building blocks of their ongoing learning. 

Grammar, Phonics, & Sight Words Make Reading Easy

Your child learns to break down words into individual sounds and go over sight words daily to become confident, independent readers. They will read on their own and soon graduate from learning to read to reading to learn!

You Are An Integral Partner In Your Child’s Success

An open-door policy welcomes you to be a part of your child’s day. Parent/teacher conferences and the Kangarootime app are chances to address questions and concerns and celebrate achievements, so don’t be afraid to reach out. 

Parent Workshops & Date Night For Free Time & Knowledge

Take a night off, go out on the town, or catch up with shelved household tasks with Date Night care. Frequent parent workshops answer your questions and keep you up-to-date on the best practices for your child. 

Safety Measures Put
Your Mind At Ease

Attentive teachers keep a close watch on your child, whether in class or the playground. Surveillance cameras and access to the building by key or code only add another layer of security, putting your mind at ease.

Go Beyond 123s & ABCs With 5 Keys To Learning

5 keys define your child’s Kindergarten experience and help them grow into confident, socially-equipped adults who think creatively. 

The Five Keys To Learning Are:

  • SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL: Relationships are necessary for me to learn.
  • CONFIDENCE: My brain is amazing and growing quickly.
  • SELF-IDENTITY: I am unique.
  • POWER OF PLAY: Play is how I learn best.
  • LAYERED LEARNING: I learn socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.

Eco-Healthy Certified To Protect Your Child's Health

Welcome to the only Eco-Healthy Child Care® certified center in New Braunfels and the surrounding areas. Plant-based, hospital-grade disinfectant keeps toys, nap mats, and spaces deep clean without exposing children to harmful chemicals. 

A Deep Dive Into STEM Through Hands-On Fun

Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities are starting points for your child to uncover problems, ask questions, and collaborate. They discuss and test ideas, and design improved solutions to put into action.

Daily Outdoor Free Play Enriches Bodies & Minds

Your child learns the hands-on wonder of watching a shoot break through soil they water and tend. Daily playground activities like running, climbing, and jumping expand coordination and focus, making it easier to write, tie shoes, and more.

Social-Emotional Skills Taught With Stories

“Social stories” told in class illustrate social skills that build character and inspire healthy friendships. Your child learns about taking turns, following directions and rules, sharing, being a good friend, impulse control, and more, to lead fulfilling lives.

We love Brilliant Starts!! Ms. Nadia and Ms. Margaret always keep us informed and care for our son just like we would. I was very nervous about choosing a day care, but I know now we made the right decision. Every morning he is so excited to see Ms.Nadia, makes drop off easy and me so happy.

As far as child care goes this school has the best care I have seen. My son has been to multiple child care centers and this one for sure held the highest standards for care. I hope one day I can re enroll him there

The facility is secure and always clean. Having 3 children of varying ages enrolled allows for interaction with multiple teachers, all of which are wonderful. Communication between not only teachers and parents, but also owners and parents is smooth and timely.
